We have always been passionate about giving back & fitness. We started a non-profit, Sweet Dreams Foundation in 2006 that gives children battling life-threatening illnesses their DREAM bedrooms. Seeing so many children fight for their lives stirred a passion in us for all around wellness. Our motto quickly became, “Fight as though it depends on you, Pray knowing it depends on God” from the book The Circle Maker. Jen then went through yoga teacher training in 2011 to further serve the community.
In 2016, our son Eli was born. That year we lost 5 children to cancer through Sweet Dreams. As new parents, it was devastating to see so many parents bury their babies never to be held in their arms again. We knew we wanted to keep up with our fitness routines but also wanted to spend every moment we could with our sweet new baby boy.
We both started working out at home. Jen started a home yoga practice where she placed Eli on her mat and engaged with him every moment. She began to secure Eli to her legs and watched her core get stronger and stronger as Eli grew and saw the calming and joyful impact it had on Eli. Daniil then saw what an amazing idea Roos Wraps was and started his own fitness routine with Eli. As Eli grew, Daniil would attach him to his feet and began to do pull ups and leg lifts. Eli loved it!!
After much prayer, we decided as a couple to pursue a patent for Roos Wraps seeing all the incredible benefits from fitness for us and teaching Eli how to sit up and walk with this creation. We wanted to be able to share this with all families inspiring them to live a healthy lifestyle.
We have decided to create free prenatal yoga videos and mommy and me videos to share with our Roos Wraps community. Daniil will also be creating Daddy and Me workouts too!
Knowing that we never want to stop giving back to children who are very sick, we have decided to give a portion of all the proceeds to Sweet Dreams Foundation.
We pray that as you connect with our family, your life will be filled with abundant joy and great health. Share the experiences you have with us and with your community.
Know that you all make a difference in our family and Sweet Dreams Foundation!
Help us welcome our new addition to our family, Isaiah. Lots of videos to come!
